While the internet is one of the most powerful and useful resources of the modern age, it can also be a dangerous place. Children and teens are vulnerable to numerous threats and inappropriate content online if parents do not regularly monitor their digital activity. As a parent, we always want to protect our family in the physical world, and it only makes sense to protect them in the digital world as well.
Fortunately for Microsoft users, there is a new alternative and friendly app for parents to track and monitor what their children are doing online while managing content and scheduling screen time. The app is called Microsoft Family Safety, offering parental control capabilities and productivity features for the entire family. Users can use the program for sharing notes, calendars, locations, and Microsoft Office apps.
This app will help your children and teens create healthy digital habits, foster an open dialogue about online safety with parents, understand why they have certain limits, and educate them about online threats. The many features found within the Microsoft Family Safety app make it one of the most helpful resources for parents who want added protection for their kids.
